Six Feet Under Lyrics

Blamed for a crime that wasn’t done

Shunned like a prisoner on the run

Living in fear of that knock on the door

Wondering what I was brought to this world for?

 

Feel like a leper in the crowd

Feel my heart pounding so loud

Wishing someone would hear my point of view

Something that most people don’t want to do

 

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows

Take me away in an old wheel barrow

Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow

To dig my grave so shallow

 

Don’t make it deep

When I’m six feet under

Don’t make it deep

When I’m six feet under

 

Judge said ‘It’s done, I have to pay’

Screamed through his wig ‘Take him away

Nothing’s fair and you know it’s true

No-one wants to think any more ’bout you’

 

Felt they had taken all my hope

Felt my neck tightening from the rope

Never thought the end would happen like this

Wasn’t here long enough for to be missed

 

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows

Take me away in an old wheel barrow

Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow

To dig my grave so shallow

 

Don’t you write my name

Just mark the spot with a number

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

 

As I look down at the trap door

They made a mistake that’s for sure

Waiting for the news to come down the line

Waiting to be saved in the nick of time

 

Who should be pardoned them or me?

None so blind as those who won’t see

Forgive them for they know not what they do

Forgive them for they know not what they do

 

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows

Take me away in an old wheel barrow

Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow

To dig my grave so shallow

 

Don’t write no words

When I’m six feet under

Don’t write no words

When I’m six feet under

Don’t write no words

When I’m six feet under

Let them ask and wonder

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

 

Blamed for a crime that wasn’t done

Shunned like a prisoner on the run

Living in fear of that knock on the door

Wondering what I was brought to this world for?

 

Feel like a leper in the crowd

Feel my heart pounding so loud

Wishing someone would hear my point of view

Something that most people don’t want to do

 

After I’m cut down from Tyburn Gallows

Take me away in an old wheel barrow

Through the cobbled stoned streets so narrow

To dig my grave so shallow

 

Don’t make it deep

So I can hear the roar of the thunder

Don’t make it deep

So I can hear the roar of the thunder

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

Don’t make it deep

Don’t make it deep

Don’t make it deep

Don’t make it deep

So I can hear the roar of the thunder

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under

When I’m six feet under
